The Reasons

"I chose FIT because inspiration is all around campus! All the original work that we the students create can be seen walking down the halls, in the museum, in the ever-changing exhibits in the Pomerantz Lobby, and even walking down the sidewalk! Inspiration breeds inspiration here!"

-Williemina Samson, 
Production Management
 "Coming from El Salvador, my dream was to study Communications Design in New York City, the hub of creativity, even if it meant doing it all on my own. I chose FIT because of its accessibility and the opportunity it gave me to afford to go to college on my own."

- Patrick Obando Polio, 
Communications Design

"I chose FIT because my mentor, a 1988 FIT grad, and his Live Out Loud organization, gave me the inspiration and tools to come here. Transferring to FIT was the best choice I made. I am now pursuing my dream to learn everything there is to know about the business of fashion!"

- Brian Williams 
Fashion Merchandising Management '14
